Question about my PSU

Ok so I just built my first ever desktop and it's GeForce GTX 980 Ti, i7-6700, etc. And the estimated power was 416W so I bought a 550W 80+ gold PSU, do you think that's efficient? Because I've put everything together and the cable management took me ages (there's like no room on the backside of an 88R) so I don't want to take it all apart if it's not necessary.

550w is enough. It doesn't give a whole boat load of headroom, but it is sufficient.

The question is, what specific power supply?

hmm EVGA SuperNova 550W GS 80+ gold I think is what it's called can't remember off the top of my head (I know everything except GS is correct)

Your set. You have absolutely no rooms for upgrades though. Unless you want to downgrade...

Well if I ever do upgrade I'll probably get a new case and PSU because everything barely fits in the case I have
